In Philly his 2 years there they had injuries to the linebackers which killed his system. He comes here to arguably a great linebacking corps and what happens? 2 starters go down immediately. He seems snakebitten at linebacker. Hopefully ading Kuechly and getting Beason and hopefully Davis back turns that around. I am excited to see what happens when we actually tun our scheme.
The writing was on the wall for the LBs though. Davis had just come off two knee surgeries and Beason rushed back from the achilles injury. My fingers are crossed for this year though.

All in all I thought he did very well. We had game winning or tying chances inside the red zone at the end of multiple games. We just didn't make the final play.
